During Project Design

Project stakeholders include local government authorities and provincial people's committee in Kien Giang province, local population, businesses, road users and transporters.

During the feasibility study of the first project, consultations were held with relevant stakeholders including the communities affected by the road. The community perspective, in terms of positive and negative impacts, was discussed. The community felt that roads to market and school would be more accessible because of the project. Less vehicle damage was considered an important benefit because of the improved road. Road safety was noted as a serious concern of local residents.

During Project Implementation During the proposed PPTA consultations will be conducted with key stakeholders, community-based organizations (CBOs), and communities in the project areas regarding resettlement, environment, risks of HIV/AIDS and human trafficking. The mode of consultations will be through workshop meetings (key stakeholders and CBOs) as well as public meetings and focus group discussions (local communities).
